WCMS inducted 5 students into the REACH Georgia Program. Upon successful completion of the program and graduation from high school, each of these students will earn a $10,000 scholarship. Congratulations to Morgan Brown, Mandy Burger, Joshua Childers, Za'Tarion Redding, and Shermon Smith.
REACH Georgia is a mentorship and scholarship program that provides scholars with the academic, social, and financial support needed to graduate from high school, gain access to college and achieve post-secondary success.
At the induction ceremony, Mrs. Deirdere Smith, school counselor explained the requirements and commitment for the REACH Georgia Program. Each REACH scholar voiced their commitment to keeping good grades, attendance, and behavior, meeting with their mentor and academic coach, and graduating from high school and college with a resounding "I will." Each scholar then signed a contract reflecting this verbal commitment. Mr. Walker, principal, and Mrs. McCard, assistant principal both offered their congratulations and support as these students take their next steps towards ultimately earning this scholarship.
WCMS is so proud of these students and believes in their potential.
